WHAT IS PILATES
Pilates is system of exercise that targets the smaller deep muscles of the abdomen and spine to strengthen your body from the inside out.
Developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920's, Pilates is a form of exercise that builds your core strength focusing first on the smaller inner muscles that support your spine and joints and create functional movement in your body.
To some of you it may seem intimidating because of all the equipment, but it is an accessible and assistive form of exercise designed for everybody. You will build strength, flexibility and lean muscle tone with an emphasis on lengthening the body and aligning the spine rather than bulking and shortening the muscles the weight lifting does.
Through regular classes you will achieve a balance of strength and flexibility, a balance of opposing muscle groups and better balance in the body when moving through all of life's activities. It enhances mental awareness and requires focus on executing the exercises correctly, focus on breathing and also focus on counting. This mindfulness has been found to reduce stress hormone levels in the body... so your Pilates class is the perfect way to unwind at the end of a long day in the office or at work!
PILATES FOR SPORTS AND FITNESS
Most of us today when going to the gym, running or playing sport have super strong superficial muscles (the larger 'visible' muscles) and feel strong, but to prevent injury and improve your performance in whichever sport you choose Pilates is an essential part of your weekly routine. It sets the foundation for optimal performance.
SITTING AT A DESK ALL DAY?
We all know that sitting in a static position all day is not good for us. Our joints stiffen, our hip flexors weaken and shorten and let's face it most of our muscles are on a holiday! Sitting with poor posture for 8-10 hours per day can create areas of tightness called trigger points, which can cause a lot of discomfort and often referred pain to other connected areas of the body. Common complaints are neck pain, tight rounded shoulders, tight pectoral muscles around the chest, headaches and a general lack of energy.
By attending your classes weekly, you will release the tension and tightness through these trigger points and also through dynamic movement. Relieve the tension in your neck and shoulders, open up through the chest, increase your core strength, create optimum mobility in your hips and lengthen your hip flexors. The overall result is improved posture, and a clearer mind.. who wouldn't want that??
